New Object Instance is not unique


I create 2 instances (object1, object2) of the same class and pass different parameters to the constructor.

The Constructor of the object1 is processed correctly.

But the constructor of object2 changes the values of object1.

This class is not final and not singleton and no reference assign.



zcl1 TYPE REF TO z002_cl_01,

zcl2 TYPE REF TO z002_cl_01.



iv_param1 = 'Z'.



iv_param1 = 'N'.



mv_param1 = iv_param1. " Param1 saved to attribute


After ZCL2 is created, the attribute value of ZCL1->MV_PARAM1 changed from 'Z' to 'N'.

Why this? Please help

    Hello Oleg

    The only explanation that I have is that you defined attribute MV_PARAM1 as static instead of instance attribute.

    Change from static to instance attribute and your coding works.

      Hi there

      you CAN also use an instance attribute

      for example in a class i have zcl_alv_grid here's its constructor.

      method constructor .
      create object grid_container1
      *           container_name = 'CCONTAINER1'.
          container_name = cfname.
          create object  grid1
                i_parent = grid_container1.
          set handler z_object->on_user_command for grid1.
          set handler z_object->on_toolbar for grid1.
          set handler z_object->handle_data_changed for grid1.
          set handler z_object->handle_data_changed_finished for grid1.
          set handler z_object->on_dubbelklik for grid1.
          set handler z_object->on_hotspot for grid1.
          call method grid1->register_edit_event
                 i_event_id = cl_gui_alv_grid=>mc_evt_enter.

      z_object is an import parameter

      z_object type ref to zcl_alv_grid.

      the relevant instance of z_object is created for example

       create object primary_grid
                         z_object = primary_grid
                         cfname = 'CCONTAINER1'.
           assign primary_grid to <fs1>.
         i_object = <fs1>.

      so for using this instance i just call any method in the class

      call method i_object->your_method.

      Now for a NEW instance just do the same

      create object secondary_grid


      z_object = secondary_grid

      cfname = 'CCONTAINER2'.

      assign secondary_grid to <fs1>.


      i_object1 = <fs1>.

      Now call your method

      call method i_object1->your_method.

      Works a treat -- instance methods are often more useful than static methods in any case especially if you want to do a lot of dynamic calls.

    A tip, that works pretty good and helps mixing up accesses to static attributes and instance attributes: Use ME->attribute to access instance attributes and class-name=>attribute" to address static attributes.
